BF: The next generation of British Nazis

EBF report August 2015 BF Nazi PDFYesterday we showed how the Biffers’ Deputy leader and ‘Press officer’, Jayda “Dutchy” Fransen has taken her inspiration from the work of Julius Streicher, the infamous, anti-Semitic Nazi propagandist.. Using a series of quotes from Streicher himself or his propagandist newspaper, ‘Der Sturmer’ we collated a short PDF to illustrate the point. That PDF can be downloaded here.

Today we’ve given the Britain First policy statement the same treatment. This time we relied chiefly upon policy pronouncements from Adolf Hitler himself with a few additional comments from the likes of Herman Goerring and other high ranking Nazi leaders. It was a real eye-opener, even for us.

Download our report and see for yourself.

We think it’s really important that as many British people as possible understand just what Britain First stands for and why it’s so important to stop them and others like them before it’s too late. As one German who lived through the second world war said (quoted in the PDF)…

“Suddenly it all comes down, all at once. You see what you are, what you have done, or, more accurately, what you haven’t done, (for that was all that was required of most of us: that we do nothing). You remember the occasions in which maybe if you had stood others would have stood too. You remember everything now, and your heart breaks. Too late. You are compromised beyond repair.”

Yesterday we were a little flippant (or so we thought) in suggesting that Dutchy Fransen had studied Nazi arguments and simply copied them. In truth we suspected that it was just a predictable similarity, both parties being ideologically the same. Having found the same pattern of plagiarising Nazi ideas in BF’s policy documents we’re beginning to think that they actually have deliberately lifted the Fuhrer’s ideas from Mein Kampf! It’s that much of a coincidence. It’d be incredible to think of the fidelity between BF and Nazi Germany’s policies as mere chance.

If you could share it (either this blog post or the pdf itself) we’d really appreciate that too.

Jayda Fransen meets Julius Streicher

Jayda Fransen parenthesis Julius Streicher pic 1Jayda Fransen isn’t only Britain First’s ‘Deputy leader’. She’s also the Biffers’ ‘Press officer’ according to her online biography at BiritainFirst.org. So we thought we’d compare her recent article to the German Nazi Party’s equivalent – Der Sturmer editor, Julius Streicher. The results were very interesting.

There are some differences. Streicher’s work in the 1930s and 1940s was all about demonising Jews. Fransen’s task here in modern UK is to try to make us all hate Muslims. But the tactics are the same, the repetitive simplicity of the message is the same too. It seems that the Biffers are learning their lessons from the Nazis and following the instructions to the letter…

“If you tell a big enough lie and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.”

(Adolf Hitler)

“The people can always be brought to the bidding of their leaders. All you have to do is tell them that they are in danger of being attacked and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.”

(Hermann Goering)

It doesn’t take a genius to see that this is  precisely the tactic that Britain First has been using for years now:

  • They’ve over simplified the issue of child sexual exploitation to pretend it’s a Muslim issue alone;
  • They’ve over-simplified the issue of religious extremism to make it seem as though it’s a Muslim issue alone;
  • They’ve over-simplified the problem of violent crime on British streets to make it seem as though it’s a Muslim problem alone;
  • They’ve over-simplified the problem of religious bigotry to make it seem as though it’s a Muslim problem alone.

Can you see a pattern here?

EBF Jayda Fransen parenthesis Julius Streicher pic 2Also, just like the Nazis, Britain First has exaggerated the impact of the UK’s minority Muslim population and likened them to subhumans or vermin. This is precisely what Hitler’s Nazi party did to German Jews in the build up to the second world war.

Julius Streicher wrote in Der Sturmer (the Nazi propoganda newspaper) in 1938…

“The Jews are a people of bastards, afflicted with all diseases, They are a people of criminals and outcasts. They are the carriers of disease and vermin among men . . . A rotten apple cannot be assimilated by a basketful of healthy apples. Mice and rats cannot be acknowledged as useful pets and live within the community     . . . . Bacteria, vermin and pests cannot be tolerated . . . for reasons of cleanliness and hygiene we must render them harmless by killing them off . . . Why should we repress our feeling for cleanliness and hygiene when it comes to the Jew?”

In 2015 Britain First had this to say about Muslims…

Rotherham’s white grooming gangs?

Although we have always disagreed very strongly with Britain First’s idea about how to deal with child sexual exploitation in Rotherham we, like so many others have always accepted the reports that the majority of the offenders were men from ethnic minority groups, and that a significant proportion of them were of Pakistani origin.  So many news reports, so many politicians and so many senior policemen made the same claim that it seemed very credible.

This June an extremely interesting reportwas published. Entitled ‘The Way Forward for Rotherham it was produced by the Rotherham local safeguarding children’s board and it makes harrowing but fascinating reading. This report casts doubt upon the popular narrative, going so far as to suggest that 68% of offenders in Rotherham were actually white British. That’s a very far cry from the media narrative about ‘Muslim grooming gangs’ and a powerful slap in the face for the racially motivated ‘campaign’ from Britain First to oppose all UK Muslims because of Rotherham child sexual exploitation scandals. According to the report…

“The number of offenders, including suspects, were mainly White”

Yes, we know – we were fooled too. But let us say that again – just so you get it…

“The number of offenders, including suspects, were mainly White”

But don’t just take our word for it. Read the report for yourself if you like. It’s here.

Rotherham grooming csa white british 68 percent

Or have a look at this

“..the Crown Prosecution Service’s lead on child sexual abuse and violence against women and girls, tries to offer a calm perspective. Unruffled by mounting media hysteria over the ethnicity of abusers in Rotherham, he suggests stepping back and taking a wider view of the nationwide picture of child sex abuse.

His role means he has oversight of all child sex abuse cases in England and Wales. “So I know that the vast majority of offenders are British white male,” he says, setting the number at somewhere between 80 and 90%. “We have come across cases all over the country and the ethnicity of the perpetrators varies depending on where you are … It is not the abusers’ race that defines them. It is their attitude to women that defines them.” “

Of course, we don’t imagine there are hordes of white British child sexual exploiters roaming Rotherham’s streets any more than there are hordes of Asian Muslims doing the same. We do think that it’s important that any such headline is responsible – hence our somewhat ironic reference to ‘white grooming gangs’ which we hope might expose the equally prejudicial use of the term ‘Muslim grooming gangs’.

The report states that 24% of the perpetrators were Asian, let alone Muslim. We compared this to the demographic breakdown of Rotherham’s population and it does, genuinely seem disproportionate. The 2011 census (a representative date for the offences under consideration) shows a Muslim population of 3.7%.

Rotherham 2011 census demographic religion muslim 2

Rotherham’s combined Asian population numbers around 5.6%.

The total BME population is 8.1%.

Census 2011 Rotherham ethnicity

That means that Asians were over-represented by a multiple of 4 (give or take) in the figures released last June. However – they do not represent a majority of perpetrators and they most certainly do not represent the entire Asian population (or even the entire Muslim population).

So what does all this mean?

First of all it means that any organisation that is genuinely concerned about protecting children really ought to focus its resources on more than a minority of offenders. By focusing exclusively upon Asian Muslims (assuming that the recently published figures are accurate) Britain First ignores over three quarters (76%) of Rotherham’s child sexual exploitation. Additionally, they ignore the non-Muslim Asians who presumably make up a very significant proportion of the remaining 24%.

But – for simplicity’s sake let’s forget the obvious problem that Asian doesn’t necessarily mean Muslim and assume that all of the Asian 24% were Muslims. Rounding the figures up that means that a grand total of 17 of the 71 repeat offenders in these ‘grooming gangs’ would have been Asian Muslims. Of course the true figure would be less than that but we want to keep the sums simple.

At the time of the last census Rotherham had a total population of 257,280. Muslims made up 3.7% of that figure. That equals a total of 9,520 Muslims living in Rotherham. Even if we assume that all 24% Asian perpetrators in Rotherham were indeed Muslim (statistically very unlikely) that means that approximately 0.2% of Rotherham’s Muslim population is known to be involved in child sexual exploitation. That’s approximately 1 in 500.

Let’s put that another way… 99.8% of Rotherham’s Muslims are not involved!

Of course – that still leaves the problem of the 0.2% of Rotherham’s Muslims who have been involved in some way with child sexual exploitation. That involvement, according to the report, ranges from online grooming and ‘inappropriate relationships’ to procurement and actual rape. These are all significant crimes and all the offenders deserve to be prosecuted but it’s not at all the image Britain First likes to portray.

The impact of far right and neo-nazi intervention

Of course there can be no justification for the fact that the officials in Rotherham ignored the problems of child sexual exploitation that were reported to them. But it does appear that their fears about further exploitation by neo-nazi groups were well-founded.

Those fears seem to have been understandable given the way that far right groups like Britain First, the English Defence League, the National Front, UKIP and the BNP have exploited the situation for their own, divisive ends. It seems that the authorities in Rotherham were very aware of the way that Britain’s neo-nazis had capitalized upon similair revelations in Derby and elsewhere and were desperately trying to prevent its repetition.

There does appear to have been a very real problem in Rotherham and quite possibly elsewhere. But it’s not the fault of the 99.8% of British Muslims who played no part in child sexual exploitation. It’s the fault of the offenders themselves and the leeway afforded them by an overly defensive local authority and an overly sensitive police establishment who, in part because of fears about the far-right’s reaction, avoided the issue.

What’s the truth?

To be fair, we genuinely don’t know how accurate or representative even these figures are. It seems that as more information comes to light the picture of what happened in Rotherham keeps on changing. Perhaps we’ll never know for sure.

What we are certain about is this…

The problem of inadequate official responses to child sexual exploitation and related crimes will not be solved by targeting a minority of offenders, ascribing their criminal tendencies to all members of their ethnic group and then persecuting the innocent. That has merely diverted police time and money away from the real perpetrators and distracted public attention from the real problem. There is no point in attacking 99.8% of a minority group because of the actions of 0.2% of their number. Unless of course your motivation has nothing to do with protecting children at all.

Child Sexual Exploitation is a problem for us all. It impacts upon all our communities and we all need to be aware of it, of how to protect our own children and of how to best help others. None of us benefit from divisiveness, least of all the children. Perhaps it’s time for the far right to put away their flags and megaphones and join in the work that needs to be done to protect children from abuse?

We’re sure that many of Britain First’s supporters are as upset and concerned as the rest of us. Child sexual exploitation really IS outrageous but if experiences in Rotherham and Derby have shown us anything it’s that over the top condemnations of entire groups do nothing to solve the problems we all face. On the contrary they just make it more difficult for those in authority to address their localized problems openly. If only those BF supporters who actually care about these children could come to the table (and the library!) and try to help instead of hurling abuse and flags all over the place it might make a difference!

But that wouldn’t help Britain First’s wider cause. It wouldn’t help them to demonise and alienate UK Muslims. It wouldn’t help them sell their trashy merchandise and con donations out of their supporters. And that’s why the likes of Folding Golding and Dutchy Fransen will never stop fuelling division and prejudice. For them it’s not about child protection – it’s about profit.

We don’t believe that Britain First cares a damn about Rotherham’s children.

We believe that they care only about exploiting their trauma still further in a shameful attempt to further their own neo-nazi cause.

We also believe that the vast majority of the good people of Rotherham and of the wider UK can see right through their shallow, divisive and racist agenda.

Getting funky in Folkestone

We all know that Britain First loves traditional British stuff. You know – Indian curries, Bavarian beverages, Turkish, Arabic saints called George, Turkish kebabs (Folding Golding’s particular favourite), Dutch immigrants (another of Folding’s particular favourites) and American spellings. Well now they’re branching out into traditional English country dancing.

Few people realise just how skilled South Eastern RCO, Steve Lewis is at traditional English Morris dancing. Not only is he an acknowledged master of this wonderful art form, he’s also generous enough to provide free training and demonstrations nationwide.

Here he is putting a class of coppers from Folkestone through their paces.

Such generosity!

In Jesus’ name

EBF flyer in jesus name 2Exposing Britain First has developed a briefing pack and awareness-raising flyer for Church leaders. The idea is to Email this pack to ordained priests, ministers, pastors and other Christian church leaders throughout the UK. Britain First is trying to hijack Christianity for its own, nefarious purposes and we think that this country’s community of genuine (non-Nazi) Christians need to know what’s happening in the name of their Lord, Jesus.

The briefing pack is available to download here…

EBF church leaders’ briefing pack

If  you’re a church leader please feel free to download the PDF and get in touch if you’d like to know more. There’s a dedicated EBF Email address set up for the purpose:

exposingbf@hotmail.com

If you’re a churchgoer yourself, please forward this to your priest, pastor, minister or leader. The more committed Christians understand about Britain First’s misuse of their faith the greater the opposition to Britain First’s neoNazi hypocrites will be.

For over 2,000 years Christians have promoted peace for all mankind. In the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ, Christians have sought to promote harmony and love throughout the nations, as our redeemer commanded.

There is a political party in modern Britain that uses that legacy to sow division. They promote hatred under the banner of Christianity and they’re more popular than you might expect. The name of this political party is ‘Britain First’. Their stated aim is to start a Holy War, a Crusade between Christians and Muslims on UK streets – and it’s working.

Hate crime is increasing and attacks upon our Muslim neighbours by thugs claiming to be performing their ‘Christian duty’ are becoming more common by the day.

We call upon all true Christians to help spread the word about the real message of Christianity. The faith is being hi-jacked. To know more about this growing problem (and how to combat it) visit Exposing Britain First on Facebook, Twitter or here at WordPress.

Failing in Folkestone

The Biffers went down to Folkestone yesterday. They thought it’d be good to make a nuisance of themselves in Kent but was that really such a bright idea? Perhaps their only achievement on the South coast this weekend was to demonstrate just how weak they really are.

Kent is the Biffer’s home territory – their ‘home county’, as they say. It’s the home of both Folding Golding and Dutchy Fransen (the Fuhrer and his deputy), not to mention Lewis and Slatter (the take-over twins).

So we might expect a pretty big turnout of Biffers on a fine Saturday in the heart of Biffer country. After all, with an online following of several squillion (none of which are sock puppets, overseas stooges or bought likes from Asian click farms, honest) we should’ve seen many hundreds of ‘activists’ blanketing this important English port with leaflets.

It is true that Folkestone on Saturday was the biggest turnout of Biffer activists by far. Never before have they had more than half a dozen or so neoNazis dishing out leaflets at any one time. Often they’ve been reduced to only one or two, skulking around in the wee small hours when all the decent people were alseep. Who could forget the hilarious video of Stevie “back-stabber” Lewis sneaking around sleepy Yorkshire housing estates like a benighted burglar?

Such astounding courage!

Such utterly pointless stupidity.

Such a novel cure for his recurrent insomnia.

BF Folkestone activists in pub

Yesterday, even including the regulars (except Dutchy, oddly enough), they only managed 20 bigots. You can see them here infesting a pub at the end of a long day’s trouble-making.

Now – is it just us or would you also have expected to see more biffers than that in their home territory?

Is it possible that there really aren’t twenty-seven million squillion ker-chillion biffers waiting to save us all from the evil invading immigrant army currently storming our coastal defences at Folkestone and Dover? Perhaps this hapless handful of comedy, would-be soldiers might be more at home somewhere like Warmington-on-sea.

Biffer justice

I haven’t posted for a while. That’s because we took the girls up North to York for a little break. Our littlest has now decided she wants to be a Viking ‘shield maiden’ when she grows up. Why, oh why did we have to take them to the Jorvic centre?

So I haven’t had the time to write much but I have been reading – keeping up with developments over at Biffer Towers. I’ve watched with great interest the intimidating but actually toothless legal letters that Dowson has been sending out to anyone who dares to disagree with him. I also took a particularly keen interest in the way that the Biffers continue to misrepresent the news to suit their own, bloodthirsty agenda.

Whilst we were in York we climbed the steep stone steps up to Clifford’s Tower, the site of one of medieval England’s most notorious Jew massacres. It happened in the late 1100s, partly as a result of the ‘Blood libel’ in which Jews were accused of a range of crimes from poisoning wells to the ritual murder of Christian children. Of course, the hapless Jews were quite innocent but that didn’t stop the uneducated, medieval Christian mob from butchering them.

Hubby and I were talking about that awful York massacre when this EBF meme appeared on my phone. It really is remarkable how similar the medieval blood libel is to the modern Islamophobic libel perpetrated by far right, neo-Nazi groups like Britain First. Their not so subtle rewording of the original Huff Post article may be predictable but it’s also dangerous and incredibly dishonest. Nothing new there then!

BF EBF anti semitic hate crime huff post misrepresentation

The bigots at Biffer Towers love to accuse British Muslims of any crimes they can think of – even when they have no evidence for Muslim involvement at all. We’re sorry to have to break it to Folding Golding and his sidekick Dutchy Fransen but ‘wanting it to be true’ doesn’t constitute evidence of actual guilt in any proper (kangaroo free) court. We know that the burden of proof requirement inside Biffer Towers is a bit different but in the real world telling lies to the judge doesn’t really work. But of course, they already know that. The not so dynamic Biffer duo learned that lesson when they picked up their recent High Court injunction.

We think it’s very interesting that whilst they’ll happily blame British Muslims for all sorts of henious crimes, including paedophilia and murder

BF Muslim grooming brochure 1

They don’t seem too keen to comment when the culprit turns out to be one of their own white, neo-Nazi, paedophiles. We’d have thought they’d at least issue some sort of retraction or apology for claiming this poor little girl was murdered by Muslims. That’d be the decent thing to do, wouldn’t it?

Britain First hasn’t said a single word about this white, non-Muslim, neo-Nazi’s conviction.

Why do you think that might be?
